Kirby was also nominated for a Grammy Award

You can argue that Kirby doesn’t like to sing, just as he sucks up his enemies. Kirby’s singing voice is usually terrible, so a sharp, high-pitched sound with the power of the microphone will destroy all enemies on the screen. But now, the Pink Puff Ball is aiming to win a Grammy Award, even if the nomination is only indirectly related to Kirby himself.

Under the category of Best Arrangement, Instrumental, or A Cappella Complete list of Grammy nominees, Meta Knight’s Revenge (from “Kirby Superstar”) is one of the nominated songs. This Grammy-nominated arrangement was written by Charlie Rosen and Jake Silbermann and performed by an 8-bit big band featuring Button Smasher. This is a fat and funky version of the song that first appeared on the 1996 Super Nintendo Kirby Super Star.You can check the complete record of the arrangement at YouTube..

Video game nominations are rare at Grammy Awards. In 2012, the Austin Wintory Journey soundtrack The first Grammy-nominated video game soundtrack Best score soundtrack in the visual media category. The award will be given to a female with a dragon tattoo.

Kirby’s Dream Land and Forgotten Land Screen (Nintendo Direct, from September 2021)

For Kirby, you can check the source material “Kirby Super Star” on the SNES Nintendo Switch Online service. It’s ranked 47th on IGN’s list of Top 100 SNES games, so it’s still worth your time. And his next adventure, Kirby and the Forgotten Land, is coming to Switch early next year. This game is a 3D adventure that takes place in some sort of apocalyptic setting and looks like a big departure from recent entries in the series.
